United States Boat Show Week Two

It's quite a week for boat shows around the world with one of the biggest happening close to our home on the east coast of the USA.

The United States Sailboat Show came to a close a few days ago in Annapolis, Maryland, but its partner-show, the United States Powerboat Show, begins today in the same space. This is a huge show - in fact the show's website claims that it is "the nation’s oldest and largest in-water powerboat exhibition." If you are planning to attend, you might want to wait until Saturday or Sunday... Maryland is expecting a rainy start, but show-goers should enjoy some beautiful weather later in the weekend (check the Annapolis forecast).

Elsewhere in the States, there are smaller in-water boat shows on lakes in Texas and South Carolina - both are worth checking out if you are within an hour's drive of either location.

There are two major shows happening outside the US this weekend - 2010 São Paulo Boat Show in Brazil starts today and runs through next Tuesday, and Scotland's Boat Show in Inverkip (see map), runs Friday through Sunday.

You can find links to the show websites, maps, and more for each of these and other upcoming shows on the FirstBoat.com boat show calendar.
